What a gift today to have Ruth Chou Simons on my podcast! Ruth is one of those rare individuals who has a deep wellspring of love for God and theology as well as the gift of bringing that love to reflect in her artwork. I love her heart for her family, and it was such a joy to record with her.
Ruth is an artist, author, entrepreneur, and speaker. Ruth is most interested in how the gospel intersects her daily life, and longs to see beauty and truth together in any creative medium. She’s "self says" she is an unlikely mom to six boys and wife to Troy, with whom she leads GraceLaced's small but mighty team. When not painting, writing, and casting vision for GraceLaced.com, Ruth is usually busy eating chips and salsa, sorting laundry, cooking for large crowds, not finishing her sentences, and discovering off-beaten paths in the wild with her guys. She is a devotee of pho, a recovering perfectionist, a converted four-wheeling enthusiast, and a believer in waiting upon her Redeemer through every season.
Ruth, Troy and their boys call both Los Ranchos, New Mexico, and the Western slope of Colorado, near Durango, home and spend their time chasing sunsets as much as possible. I am happy to now be able to call her a fellow-Colorado-an! :)
